Welcome back, Debian! Or maybe Gentoo

After hours of documentation reading, keyboard hammering and compiling, patch decided to die on me after I compiled a new version of it. That’s kind of bad, since the program is needed later in the installation of Linux From Scratch. I could consult the mailing lists for an answer to my newbie problems, but I don’t think I’ll bother. I need to focus my attention on other things, like university business.

So, now I’ll just shut down the box and see if the new module works like it’s supposed to. Tomorrow I’ll probably install Debian and have a go at tweaking that distro, instead of trying to be god-like and make my own distro. Or maybe I’ll give Gentoo Linux another chance if the RAM works all right.

I need to go to bed.
